After electing to bat first, Sri Lanka once again got off to a poor start. Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up two quick wickets even as Upul Tharanga started positively. Dickwella departed for and soon, Munaweera followed. How low can this year go for the Sri Lankan team? Only God knows. After being whitewashed in the Test series, the hosts now face a similar situation in the 50-over format. On the other hand, India has completely dominated the series so far and at the R Premadasa, Virat Kohli would be hoping to become the first captain to clean-sweep a bilateral ODI series in Sri Lanka. The captain has led from the front scoring a century in the last game. Opener Rohit Sharma has been in brilliant form too. After failing in the first two ODIs, Rohit found his form and has scored two back to back hundreds in the last two matches. The only setback for men in blue is that Shikhar Dhawan has returned to India but with Ajinkya Rahane in the squad, replacing the southpaw should not be a tough ask.

Match Update: With both the Indian openers – Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane departing the pitch cheaply, Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey have now taken the responsibility to help India go for a clean sweep. India is 237/4 in 43 overs.
